Weekly Update


Dear Families,


There is so much excitement around Sorrick School as our students have been earning fantastic rewards for good attendance! Check out the latest edition of our Attendance News Update to see which classes have achieved our target of 96% in attendance last week.


On Tuesday, we will announce our "Paw"some attendance raffle winners for Pre-K, K and 1st grade. These students will be invited to join me for "Pizza with the Principal." Our game-themed attendance board has been updated as well! Classes with perfect attendance on a particular day will be able to stop by the Candy Land board to spin the wheel and potentially earn a class incentive.


Just recently, The American Academy of Pediatrics released an article about the link between school attendance and good health. According to the article, "Chronic school absenteeism, starting as early as preschool and kindergarten, puts students at risk for poor school performance and school dropout, which in turn, put them at risk for unhealthy behaviors as adolescents and young adults as well as poor long-term health outcomes." Making sure your child has good attendance not only sets them up for success academically, but has a tremendous impact on their physical and mental well-being. We appreciate your continued support to make school attendance a priority!


Your partner in education,


Natalie Profita

Principal of Sorrick School
